After the gauge swatch we made last week, we are now starting d’Histoire Naturelle Blanket designed by Christina from A Spoonful of Yarn for real. In the first part of the blanket we make the center mandala and square it up. In this post you find the links to the written patterns, the video tutorials, and all other things you might need under resources and video tutorials.

My d’Histoire Naturelle: Herbarium
I am using the Stone Washed Herbarium colorway to make my blanket. In the first part we make a mandala, and then turn the mandala into a square. There are already so many small details; the flowing lines of the mandala, the flower petals in the corners of the square. That’s what I really like about my blanket, the details in the design.
Next week we grow this beautiful square into a different shape, see you then!

I love your videos but have you thought of possibly on the other ones putting the US terms in writing on the screen so we can still follow along your videos but see what we’re supposed to do with US terms.. your videos are my favorite to watch but I struggle with the ones that are not in US terms just an idea thank you
no, this is not an option for me. to make the series as it is already takes me about 300 hours. No, I cannot do more than I already am doing.
Esther, I just wanted to thank you for all of your amazing and beautiful videos. I am looking forward to part 2 of d’Histoire Naturelle. Your instructions are excellent and so easy to follow. I always look forward to anything you are doing.
Good Morning! Are the patterns/videos release every week or every other week?
both actually, depending on how large the part is, the full planning is available on my blog here: https://itsallinanutshell.com/2020/09/02/dhistoire-naturelle-cal-video-tutorials/
Was there a mistake in row 10.?
if there is a difference between the pattern and the video, the pattern is always the one to follow.
Row 18, 21 trebles or 21 htr.?
Video shows trebles.
Won’t the square look a bit not in a straight line, Not levelled, since at the beginning of row trebles were crocheted ?
Just wondering 🤔
as indicated in the first line of the video desciption, there is a small error in the video. always use the written pattern, the pattern is always correct. the video is simply an added resource, and does not replace the pattern in any way.
